Arsenal set to complete signing of Julio Cesar from QPR

The Mail Online is reporting that Arsenal are closing in on signing QPR keeper Julio Cesar.

The Brazilian stopped has long been linked with a move away from Loftus Road, and could now be set for a return to the Premier League after suffering relegation with QPR last season.

Arsene Wenger wants to bring in an experienced goalkeeper to keep present stoppers Lukasz Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny on their toes, and sees Brazil international Cesar as the ideal candidate.

The Mail also reports that talks between Cesar’s camp and the Gunners have taken place, but were put on hold while the 33-year-old former Inter Milan custodian fulfills his international duty at the Confederations Cup in his homeland.

He is said to favour a move away from QPR but wants to remain in London, with Arsenal being seen as his ideal destination.

Wenger has also cast his eyes over Liverpool stopper Pepe Reina and Stoke’s Asmir Begovic, but does not want to spend a large portion of his £70m transfer kitty on a keeper – and Cesar would certainly prove the cheaper option, with Rangers ready to listen to offers around the £2m mark.
